The Cider team is looking to better understand how customers will use styles and templates in line-of-business applications. How should styles & templates be presented to the user within the tools? How will you utilize the benefits of styles & templates in your applications?  Are there example LOB applications that you know of which can benefit from styles and templates in the following kinds of scenarios:

  • Consistent appearance of controls throughout an application
  • "Skinning" an application
  • Using templates for data-binding and as lightweight "user controls"

Let us know what you think.
